Legislator Gets On Texas Monthly List

After every legislative session, Texas Monthly magazine names their best and worst legislators. They also name certain legislators as 'furniture.' this is a term to describe legislators who are no more consequential than the chairs they sit in. State Representative Wayne Christian of Center received the dubious distinction, along with eight other legislators. The magazine wrote 'the sin lies not in being furniture, but in failing to recognize it.' Christian is on vacation, but his aide reminded us that his boss was named the 'Most Conservative Legislator' from the statewide volunteer group, the Texas Eagle Forum. Christian was also given the Taxpayer Hero Award from Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.
